When we are on someone else’s property, whether we are visiting or not, we have the right to expect that the area is free from hazards and that there is no risk of injury. Unfortunately though, far too many people are injured annually due to a property owner’s negligence. They may slip, trip and fall sustaining serious injuries. While some insurance companies feel slip and fall claims are minor, as Summerville slip and fall lawyers we know better and at Steinberg Law Firm we are here to help you get fair and equitable compensation for your injuries.

It is a fact that property owners and the people and/or companies that maintain the property can be held liable for injuries sustained in a slip and fall accident. Negligence can include failing to:

  • Warn the public of a slip and fall hazard
  • Install and maintain high traction, safe flooring
  • Routinely do proper maintenance on the floor or surrounding area to keep the floor safe and clean
  • Repair a defective escalator
  • Fix improper/inadequate lighting
  • Shovel snow/ice
  • Address and fix loose staircase railings
  • Not adequately repairing potholes/fill in ditches
  • Wipe up spills
  • To take care of loose rugs or replace them
  • Maintain damaged sidewalks
  •  
    Property that is open to the public means the owners have a duty of care to ensure the safety of their visitors while on the property. That could include, keeping floors clear and clean of hazards, posting clear warnings of known dangers, and providing guardrails and handrails, to help prevent injuries. If a property owner fails to meet that duty, they may be liable for any injuries that occur.

    How do these kinds of accidents happen?
    Typically, a slip and fall accident happens when someone loses traction while walking and falls. They may have encountered a hazard such as ice, oil, water, food, liquids or other debris they were not expecting. In most cases, when a victim falls they can experience the following types of injuries:

  • Concussion
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Neck injuries
  • Broken and/or fractures bones such as ankles, hips, pelvis, arms, legs, hands, wrists
  • Herniated disc
  • Paralysis
  • Spinal trauma
  • Sprains
  • Lacerations
  • Strains
  • Ruptured tendons
  • Torn muscles
  •  
    Slip and fall accidents are considered to be in the personal injury law niche and are also referred to as premises liability claims. This is due to the fact that business and property owners are legally responsible to maintain reasonably safe premises, including minimizing hazards on the property that could lead to slip and fall accidents. Such accidents are often the result of an owner or property manager’s negligence.

    Where do slip and fall accidents happen?
    Summerville slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere at any time and usually when you least expect it. However, there are some locations that are more prone to slip and fall incidents, for instance, airports, plane ramps, restaurants, grocery stores, gas stations, shopping mall and hotels.

    Grocery store and airport flooring is notorious for being cited as the cause of slip and fall accidents. In fact, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), floor materials and flooring contribute directly to over 2 million injuries every year.
